Few cars a road train like #8217;s RS6 Avant. Even one four trailers in tow.

The rigs that are common in the can be snapped up in a matter of seconds the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 thrusts to

In a matter of seconds and with no of subtlety the RS6 surges from to arrive somewhat maniacally at the limit.

It#8217;s clear one challenge the RS6 is staying below that because at that speed only three gears the eight on offer and showing no of slowing its spirited progress. Top for the unassuming wagon is 250km/h or you can opt for one of two packs that up that to or 305km/h. Keep in mind, that the Ferrari -rivalling limit is electronically limited, something like 320km/h the at which it would top out naturally.

Not we ever got near that.

a shame the Territory doesn#8217;t its unlimited stretches because is the fastest four-door Audi produced; with 412kW down on power from the car that previously wore the RS6 but has brisker acceleration, claimed to through the benchmark 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

In the middle of nowhere we stop to its off-the-mark acceleration. The Audi is off the line, with the Quattro system ruling out any wheelspin. But not as blindingly, chuck-your-head-into-the-headrest as a Porsche 911 which is one of the most ferocious ever produced.

Then this is a five-seat wagon will happily tackle the run or swallow up to 1680 litres of for a family holiday #8211; It#8217;s a sizeable machine and porky, too, at a smidge two tonnes.

It#8217;s not until 50 or 60km/h the Audi is really hitting its fully utilising the 700Nm of that kicks in from 1750rpm and is held all the way up to 5500rpm.

there it#8217;s a barrage of V8 hums, exhaust flutters on and the sort of forward propulsion jet aeroplanes would struggle to

The eight-speed auto is a winner, slicing through gears

That it continues that all the way up to the Territory#8217;s unique 130km/h is testament to how quick the RS6 is. It#8217;s the fastest wagon money can buy the Mercedes-Benz E63 wagon comes but we now only get the sedan locally) and one of the four-doors in the world.

For those bragging rights, you#8217;ll pay #8211; a cool to be precise. And that#8217;s before you go it with options. That top speed (if you#8217;re thinking of it to a race track there are where it will surpass is another $4900 but brings it some extra goodies; steering firms the feel there#8217;s also the RS Sport that can toggle the feel and between comfort/soft to firm/better

Those wanting the next will be hit for $25,840 for the Dynamic Plus, which also ceramic brakes that resist fading in heavy use race track hot laps).

As for what it#8217;s like corners, we#8217;ll have to until another day because the didn#8217;t give us the opportunity. there are bends on the Stuart and Highways, but they#8217;re gentle rather than anything involves braking or settling for the G

Audi RS6

The RS6 never felt challenged at #8211; and always had plenty in The one saving grace is that the sound of the V8 is best enjoyed at speeds, where it isn#8217;t out by wind and road noise.

The 21-inch tyres certainly well, at least when down. With huge and cross-drilled discs there#8217;s a but progressive feel to the brake all of which translates to stopping almost as impressive as the acceleration.

The ride is firm, too much so for driving if you flick the adjustable into Dynamic mode. the gentle patters and imperfections on the good surfaces of those Territory roads turned a jiggly affair. Comfort was by far the bet.
